Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

Random objects found in various parks and botanical gardens on our travels form the focus of this week’s Photo Challenge:  ‘Object’ .  The subject also gave me the opportunity to experiment with some of the palette facilities on Picasa.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    But what ARE the first two? – they’re fascinatin!

    I think they are just artistic creations, made of wire on metal frames, but they provided a nice relief to the exotic plants and bird-life in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney, Australia. It’s touches like these that really make a visit worthwhile.

  10. Neat “stuff”, Sandra. I’m just starting to use Picasa a bit and it’s quite fun.

      Hi Janet, I use it for cataloguing and tagging all my work. A while ago they dispensed with some of the advanced enhancement facilities, (palettes, focii etc) but they seem to have reinstated some of them. There’s even the facility to convert your photos into pencil drawings, but I haven’t managed to find the right photo to showcase that one yet.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
